Even though Lanzarote is closer to Africa than it is to Spain, the island is very much an official part of Spain, and thus also falls under European law and regulation. So whether you are flying to Lanzarote from the UK or from Lanzarote to the UK, or if you're flying to or from Alicante, a delayed or cancelled flight will fall under EU Regulation 261/2004. This is irrespective of what airline you are travelling with. So that means that when your flight is delayed or cancelled, or you are denied boarding, and you arrived at your destination 3 hours or more later than scheduled, you could be entitled to receive compensation from the operating airline. This compensation is part of a larger European scheme to protect consumers. It basically means that airlines aren't allowed to delay a flight and fob off air passengers without taking responsibility for this. In the past, airlines were allowed to merge two half-empty flights at the last minute in the interest of economic efficiency, resulting in passengers being left at the airport for hours or sometimes even days. The European Commission and European Court of Justice decided to put an end to that, which is why airlines are now required to compensate air passengers if they lose 3 hours or more.
The only way an airline can still be exempted from paying this compensation to their passengers is if it can eventually be proven that the delay or cancellation wasn't deliberate, but was the result of 'extraordinary circumstances'. This is the case when something happens that causes the flight to be delayed or cancelled that could not reasonably have been prevented or predicted by the airline. But if you request compensation and the airline says there is no entitlement, don't just take their word for it! Airlines try to fob customers off this way all the time, hoping they will give up and the airline won't end up having to pay compensation. There are authorities in every EU country that can investigate the cause of a delay or cancellation and determine if your claim is valid.
Flight-Delayed can help you with filing your claim with the airline, lodging a complaint with the national enforcement body and taking legal action against the airline if they continue to refuse to pay you. The compensation amount can range from 250 euros (±200 GBP) up to 600 euros (± 500 GBP) per passenger. This amount is irrespective of the initial price of your ticket, as you are compensated a certain amount for the number of hours you lost.
Non-UK flights to Lanzarote and non-UK flights to Alicante: if you are flying to Lanzarote from a non-EU country, your flight would have to have been operated by a European airline. But if you are flying from Lanzarote or Alicante to another country, your flight will fall under Regulation regardless of where you are flying to or who you're flying with. The claim calculator will help you sort all this out. It will give you an estimation of how much compensation you could receive, free of commitment.
Very fast and professional, got my claim just over a month but then again the airline did tell us we can claim and gave us leaflets.
Really simple to use, and didn't take very long for my claim to be processed.
I wasn't very optimistic about using this service, but the from the outset the communication was excellent and the instructions were clear. The claim is all handled via email and the online service portal. The team are very quick to answer any questions you have while the airline is assessing your claim. In my case, I was awarded 225 Euros compensation, better than nothing and so glad I took the time and effort to get this money back! Thank you Flight-Delayed for your fantastic service.
Very good service claiming a compensate after a long delay from airline and we got the out compensate. Thank you very much ...
Successful claim against Jet 2 ! Took a while (4yrs) but glad to finally won !!
This company provide a very fast and efficient service with no fuss and they took a fair amount of commission with no extra hidden charges. Extremely pleased with them.
i have had great help with the flight delayed trip thankyou very much to u and team
Very good Service for claming Money from Airline companies if you had a Problem like more than 3hrs delay, cancellations without reason. For my case, Airline rejected my Claim via customer Service but after i used this site it took only 4 weeks from Claim to confirmation for compensation. it's very easy to fill out the form to Claim and they answer/help right away. you should try with this even though Airline already refused to pay you with several reason.
It's taken 12 months to extract compensation from Ryanair, purely down to the pathetic customer service on the part of the Irish Airline. Will never use them again as they use every tactic in the book not to pay out, and even though they have now settled conversation rate 1.40, as opposed to commercial rate of 1,31. Many thanks to Flight-Delayed for their excellent support. Well worth 25% cut to get justice done. Highly recommended.
Just over three hours delay last year to Crete contacted this company, they sorted the claim and with in a few weeks Monet transferred into my account. fantastic service. Thank you
Didn't expect result But cash son it's way to.me. Thank you. Great company
What an excellent service , after trying for almost a year to claim compensation for a 5 hour delay in which we were kept inside the cabin with nothing to eat or drink i contacted this company and within 6 weeks I have recieved full compensation minus their 25% which I am happy to pay as I had given up. thanks again to the staff for all your communication and work to complete this. cannot recommend you enough
Just got our cempensation thanks to the team at flight delay very easy process, kept informed as to how the claim was going
Very good service to use for claiming money from the airline companies due to a long delays or cancellations for no reason or no explanation! I had no idea it is even possible, but I filled their forms and did not need to pay a thing for it. They claimed 800 euros for 2 passengers and all they took was their commission fee from the claimed price for their work which is the way it should be. They managed to get the money within a month or so.
My plane was delayed for over seven hours on a UK flight from Newquay to Manchester. I contacted Flight Delay and they quickly completed my claim without any fuss. I have received £195.62 minus a 25% charge, I actually received £145.07. All this took approx 5 weeks from beginning of claim to having payment into bank. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and thank you flight-delayed
Ryanair left us delayed at Knock Airport for over 4 hours. Not just inconvenient but annoyingly cost us an extra £23 airport parking which we could not reclaim. Although not a "serial complainer", saw the Flight Delayed Website and thought "why not?". So glad I did. Efficient and professional organisation that made it an easy process resulting in €300 for us and €100 for them and a "heads up" for Ryanair. Perfect.
What a nice surprise, cheque for delayed flight dropped through the letterbox. Asked flight delayed to do the work for me and a few emails and a few months later I received the cheque for over £600. Minus their 25% which I do not begrudge as if they hadn't done the work for me I would never have got anything. Also thanks to Martin Lewis for making me aware I could claim. Thanks delayed flights I will certainly recommend you.
Very helpful, I got a lot back. I also hope anybody who ever got flight delayed, don't lose your right! It didn't take me a lot of effort to submit the materials, they can help you.
Great service, very easy process and friendly team to deal with - answered questions quickly and through the online tool I was able to track the progress of our claim. Everything has been handled really well and I would happily recommend the Flight-Delayed team to help you with your claim.
My plane was over three hours late getting back to Manchester due to delays. I contacted Flight Delay and they got me £199 (minus 25% for their fee) for the delay. It took less than an hours work from me to fill out a form and give them my power of attorney. Six weeks later it was all sorted. Highly recommended!
